A stacked 2.4-GHz CMOS power amplifier (PA) with a mode switching scheme is proposed to enhance the back-off efficiency for wireless local area network applications. By means of dynamically tuning the bias and optimal load with a power-detecting controller, the proposed mode switching scheme effectively improves the power-added efficiency (PAE) of the PA by(More)
A 2.4GHz stacked CMOS power amplifier (PA) with mode switching scheme is proposed to improve back-off efficiency in WLAN applications. The mode switching scheme effectively improves the PAE by 100% at 5dB back-off power by dynamically tuning the PA bias and optimal load with a power detecting controller. With the transistor-stacking and self-biasing(More)
